What You Talk About Comes About

Years ago, I was listening to a CD program by Earl Nightingale. He said, "Only talk about your health if it is good." This demonstrated the power of speech and made a powerful impression on me and I have followed that advice. Truly there is only one person you need to go into detail about your health and that is your doctor. No one else really wants or cares to hear about it.

I come from a family that loved to talk about their health and how sick they were. My mother once sent out a Christmas letter to all her friends and family that outlined all the illnesses and operations that she and my father had dealt with that year. After my father died, one of his friends told my sister how much he liked my father, but couldn't stand to be around him in the later years because all he talked about was his bad health.

The problem with talking about your bad health isn't that you will bore all your friends to death; although that is the risk you take. You, also, are listening to what you are saying. Words are powerful and your subconscious mind hears everything you are saying and takes it seriously. What you talk about will come about. The more you talk about bad health the more bad health you will get. Whatever you focus on expands.

This leads me to the current situation about the economy. Everyone is talking about how bad the economy is. The more everyone talks about it the worse it seems to get. The fear factor goes up and people begin to react instead of being proactive. According to Wallace Wattles, author of "The Science of Getting Rich," 'Guard your speech. Never speak of yourself, your affairs, or of anything else in a discouraged or discouraging way. Never admit the possibility of failure or speak in a way that implies failure as a possibility. Never speak of the times as being hard or of business conditions as being doubtful.' Mr. Wattles also states that in the hardest of times your will find your greatest opportunities.


What you talk about comes about. This is because you are putting it out into the Universe. Your focus is on what you are talking about. What you focus on expands. If you don't want more, hard times in your life, stop talking about the hard times. Focus on the opportunities, what you have and what you can do to move forward. Talking about the hard times isn't going to change them. Taking action will. If you want something to talk about, talk about what you are doing to make the hard times better.

"Worry a little bit every day and in a lifetime you will lose a couple of years. If something is wrong, fix it if you can. But train yourself not to worry. Worry never fixes anything." Mary Hemingway
